DescriptionReturns information about the frames in a curtain wall from a given point.
Used for placing objects inside a panel in a curtain wall. When passing the center point of the object in the wall, it will find the panel in the curtain wall and return information about the surrouding frames.

VAR panelOffset :REAL;
VAR frameInsetTop :REAL;
VAR frameInsetBottom :REAL;
VAR frameInsetRight :REAL;
VAR frameInsetLeft :REAL) : BOOLEAN;
def vs.GetCWFramesFromPt(hWall, testPt, includeBottomFrame): return (BOOLEAN, panelThickness, panelOffset, frameInsetTop, frameInsetBottom, frameInsetRight, frameInsetLeft)
hWall HANDLE Handle to the curtain wall testPt REAL Point to test on the curtain wall. Typically the center point of the object to be placed in the curtain wall panel. includeBottomFrame BOOLEAN Include the bottom frame. panelThickness REAL This is the thickness of the panel as it subtracts from the frames. It is a property of the panel panelOffset REAL This is the dimension from the center of the panel to the center of the wall frameInsetTop REAL The frame inset is the distance the panel extends into and subtracts from the frame. frameInsetBottom REAL frameInsetRight REAL frameInsetLeft REAL
Return ValueReturns TRUE if hWall is a curtain wall and frames are found.
Returns FALSE is hWall is not a curtain wall or the test point is not found on the wall.
